    Visit your local police department (if you live in a town) or Sheriff's Office (out of town).

    They can provide you with the forms and information.

    I live in Gary, right next to you! Welcome to OCDO!

    Anyway, I just sent you a PM, so check your PMs and that will give you the info you need to get started. If you have any more questions, just send me a PM back.

    I want to get mine, here is what I know.

    No felonies, and no domestic batteries.

    Call your local PD, some will only take apps on certain days during certain hours.

    Go to your local PD, or if you live in the country go to the local sheriff's office.

    You'll need photo ID and you will be fingerprinted.

    There is a local fee, $10 for a four year, and $50 for a lifetime.
    The state fee is $30 for the four year, and $75 for the lifetime.

    Depending on procedure at your local PD, you either pay the state fee (money order made to "State of Indiana") and supply stamps and they mail the app to the State Police, or you pick up the app a week later and mail it yourself, along with the fee.

    A hunting/target permit is available, but no one here wants that permit. As was explained to me, as soon as you leave the range or the woods you must unload and break the gun down, and put it in the trunk or where you can't get to it. the personal protection permit allows you to carry (or course) but you can also hunt with it.
